Portal: Still Alive Set For PlayStation 3?

At first, it was only announced via Microsoft's GamerScore Video Blog: a sequel to Valve's imaginative first-person puzzler, Portal: Still Alive will be headed to the Xbox Live Arcade at some point later this year. It should boast even tougher puzzles and an all new Challenge Mode, but that's about all the details we have right now.

Obviously, if we're reporting on this here at PSXE, you should've assumed by now the story doesn't end there. Well, it doesn't. According to UK gaming site Electronic Theatre, we are reminded that Sony revealed a Portal title for the PlayStation 3's Store during E3 a few weeks ago. They didn't specify which title, but it's very possible that they were referring to the sequel, Still Alive. A certain PR manager said a Portal game would be coming to the Store "shortly after the Xbox 360 release," so while nothing is official as of yet, it may be time for PS3 owners to prepare themselves for a unique experience. Yes, a unique experience that doesn't test your reflexes and dexterity as much as it tests your mind. Yeah, we know...scary concept.

We also know that many of you PS3 owners don't think too highly of Valve (and to be perfectly honest, neither do we), but it'd be difficult to completely ignore something like Portal: Still Alive. We enjoy fresh twists, regardless of where they come from...but if this game really does come to the Store, and for some bizarre reason the PS3 version is inferior, we're gonna have some kind of meltdown.

geez that was quick. That Gabe guy or whoever he is...yanno the fatass that hates apparently the PS3 and/or console gaming. I'm not surprised if he just takes a huge poo poo on the PS3 again

Found this on PS3fanboy,"Addressing flying rumors that Portal: Still Alive might be going to PSN (really now?), a Valve spokesperson confirmed what we already know: it's not happening. "I'd call that today's rumor," said the spokesperson, further explaining the possibility with a simple and direct "no." So that's that. Anyway, for those of you who don't know, Portal: Still Alive is a digital downloadable version of Portal (off The Orange Box) with extra content. It's exclusive to the Xbox 360."

They also had a picture of Gabe...hes got longer hair...still fat...still an a-hole. ::shrug::

Portal is great game, i hope this will be released on pc too :D

Btw valve 'bad' in ps3 because valve games use opengl as basic.
Ps3 use nvidia geforce 7 series, a graphic processor with 'not too good' opengl performance.
When valve optimized their engine for nvidia, ps3 will get the benefit.
